Life Lately

As of late we have just been going through the rhythms of everyday life.

Enjoying the warmer temperatures...

While I would still like to have another snow before winter is over I have been enjoying not having the heater on all the time, and sleeping with the window open again is quite nice.

We have been enjoying the fresh growth around us, as well as moss on the trees.



We finally made a trip over to the local Japanese market for some lunch...


It was really delicious.

The market its self though small has everything that I need and the vibe is so much more mellow then the other Asian markets in the area.

We WILL be back!

We also finally got our passports...now to use them!


We also made it up to Brighton to actually snowboard...

The weather was perfect....bluebird conditions.






Unfortunately we have learned that snowboarding is just not our sport.

Dorking around at the park is one thing but being from the world of skateboarding where you can constantly reposition your feet none of us could deal with being strapped in.

That being said...a snowskate is in order for next winters fun.

On a bright note despite all the falls, freak outs and tears we were some of the lucky ones that were able to walk to the car and drive down the mountain on our own accord.

Sadly some others that day were not so lucky.

That being said we did not walk away uninjured.

While helping V we got too much speed and while trying to turn to stop we tumbled down on each other.

I fell right onto the edge of his board...




Needless to say my thigh is a bit damaged......It has got worse since the photo but now has turned a lovely shade of purple and yellow. 

I didn't really realize how ugly it was until I tried on some shorts at target (the only mirror in the house is over the bathroom sink)

Good thing it isn't summertime.

After riding on both powder at the park and the groomed/packed snow on the slope I now understand why people take the risk and ride backcountry.

Powder is just soooooo much nicer.

We have also been purging more items from our life. Just when you think that you have got rid of everything you don't really need there is always another box ready to go to the thrift. 

I think we have brought about 3 more loads to the thrift and then some to friends. 

It feels good to lighten the load.

I have been cooking and trying new recipes...

I made another batch of apple butter (we go though this like crazy)



And found out that one of our Indian places we enjoy now has thali. 

For some reason there aren't many who have them up here so we were more then happy when we found out.



So thats what we have been up to as of late...
